About this book

As violence against LGBTQ+ persons continues to be a pervasive and serious problem, this book aims to inform mental health providers about the unique needs of LGBTQ+ survivors of interpersonal and structural violence. Individual chapters analyze unique aspects of violence against specific subpopulations of LGBTQ+ persons in order to avoid ineffective and sometimes simplistic one-size-fits-all treatment strategies.

Among the topics covered:

  • Macro Level Advocacy for Mental Health Professionals: Promoting Social Justice for LGBTQ+ Survivors of Interpersonal Violence 
  • Intimate Partner Violence in Women’s Same-Sex Relationships 
  • Violence Against Asexual Persons
  • Invisibility and Trauma in the Intersex Community
  • Sexual and Gender Minority Refugees and Asylum Seekers: An Arduous Journey
  • Sexual and Gender Minority Marginalization in Military Contexts
  • Navigating Potentially Traumatic Conservative Religious Environments as a Sexual/Gender Minority 

Violence Against LGBTQ+ Persons prepares mental health professionals for addressing internalized forms of prejudice and oppression that exacerbate the trauma of the survivor, in order to facilitate healing, empowerment, healthy relationships, and resilience at the intersection of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and diverse social locations. This is a valuable reference for psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses, mental health professionals, and graduate students, regardless of whether they are preparing for general practice, treatment of LGBTQ+ clients, or treatment of survivors and perpetrators of various forms of violence.
